Focusing on Life - week 3 - relaxing time

Hello friends,

Books have always been a joy in my life. I was raised in a family of readers and writers. Reading will always be a way for me to relax and spend a bit of time to myself..  there is not a day that goes by without me spending some time with a book ( or e-book often ) these days.

A lot of the books I read these days have to do with jewellery making/silversmithing/ as that is my passion. This book is an exception... it is more for the sheer joy of looking at Angie's wonderful designs and the mix of colors she uses so well together. It is just total inspiration to me.

Front cover

How beautiful is this! Colour and design is always a challenge for me........this book is just full of beauty!


Today I am linking up to the studio sublime where Sally is hosting Focusing on Life over this year. 

Until next time,

I love books too and get lost in my sewing books and magazines. Reading seems to be a favorite way to take time for a lot of people.

I am a book lover too and I find that a book awaiting me is like a reward for a job well done. I'll say to myself " when I get done with all of this I'm going to sit down and enjoy that book" and sometimes it's so hard to stay on task when a new package from Amazon arrives and I can't get to it right away!

I find this too I used to get books about a lot of different things - I need more variety in my life! lol

Books - I love them especially with beautiful pictures like these. I have books in every room or else bead magazines. It looks like you found the perfect Me Time activity.

I so wish I could draw! I can't even doodle correctly! These are so cheerful! After reading many participant's responses - as to reading - I found that I am doing nearly as much of it as I'd like to - hoping to change that!

I love that cover! I am always looking for new books, but I rarely use the ones I have. I like that this was a totally unexpected surprise, not about jewelry at all, but more about color and design, which I am sure will influence your creative yearnings. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy the day. Erin

Aren't books wonderful. A good book is a treat I give myself at the end of the day. Mostly these days I read something jewelry related. The book you read looks very interesting.

Reading of some form seems to be a favorite activity for a lot of us. That mix of colors really is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your time with us.
